Off the top of my head

A few slightly random thoughts-of-the-moment while I take a short break from my schoolwork...

First of all, thanks for all the well-wishes, friends. I'm feeling much better. The weekend has been good to me and I've been able to get quite a bit of work done while still giving in to naps on occasion (and getting 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep).

The blueberries I got at the grocery store on Friday are awesome. I love them. I think I'm going to save a cup or two so I can make muffins with them, though.

I wish the person who lives above me would learn to walk more gracefully. It sounds like she has a pet elephant up there, honestly. She's petite in size, so I'm not sure what the deal is.

I wish the person who lives above me would stop dropping the toilet lid. How do I know this is the source of the "thud" I hear? It's followed by a flush every single time. It's startled me out of sleep a couple times, it's so loud... plus I don't know how many drops it takes to break a toilet lid (maybe that owl from theTootsie Pops commercials can find out for me... that or I guess I'll never know).

Thinking long and hard about linguistic identity construction makes my head hurt (and makes me wonder how I articulate who I am when I speak and write).

I wish I knew what my dog was thinking when she attacks her toys. It's hilarious. Trixie is walking along, towards the window, say, and suddenly (I'm guessing) her stuffed tiger looks at her funny so she's got to go teach him a lesson. She wails it around the room, pouncing on it and growling at it until she's decided he's had enough. Then she leaves him until next time.

I love pretty much everything that is wholesome and good about the Internet--blogging included--but I am beginning to dislike the concept of testing online for varying reasons.

I love Animal Crossing on Nintendo DS. It's by far my favorite game. Yesterday I went fishing when I played and I caught an ocean sunfish (which was as big as my character!). I still struggle with the idea of going fishing in a game where the animals are my neighbors--they're owls, dogs, birds, rabbits, frogs, and the like--why is it okay to fish?

I am totally psyched for next Friday. Wall-E comes out in theaters (and the previews before the other movies I've seen lately have made it look adorable!). Also, the 27th is my roomie's birthday :-D

I will give you props that Wall-E does look cute, but I will be running to the front of the movie line to pick up my advanced ticket to Wanted starring my girl Angelina Jolie ;)
